Last week, Miss Bridgett Eve Howard, a senior at The June Buchanan School, was recently awarded the Fine Arts Studio Scholarship at Transylvania University worth $10,000. With Transy having one of the top art programs in Kentucky, Bridgett is elated to receive this award.

In the panel review, Bridgett displayed her portfolio, as well as her fashion design, which earned her 1st place in the State High School Art Competition. This prestigious scholarship was based on technique, imagination, self-expression, and the student’s future artistic plans. JBS Art instructor Angie Spady is not surprised, saying, “Bridgett is an amazing student who has overcome great adversity. Not only does she have a 4.0 at JBS, she is one of the most imaginative students I’ve ever taught.  Not only will she be a fantastic journalist, but she will incorporate her artistic creativity into everything.”

Bridgett is the daughter of Rick Howard and the late Denise Howard of Cowan, KY. We congratulate her on this great accomplishment and wish her great success at Transylvania.
